This is a fantastic new website with a map tool to help you find ‘real bread’ and locally produced flour near you.  Just pop in your postcode and it shows you places nearby that sell high quality bread and local flour. 

Here’s my map (click on it for a larger version):

There’s some places I’ve not heard of before that I’d like to go, and there’s some places that I knew baked their own bread, but I didn’t know how good they were at sourcing local ingredients.  This website gives you a series of ‘ticks’ for most places next to each of their loaves of bread.

The Smokehouse near us looks like this (click on it for a larger version)…

It seems unlikely that I’ll be making cheese this year.  Perhaps not one for my New Year’s Resolution list, with barely enough time to do all the things I’ve already committed myself to, I think cheese making will stay firmly as a long term ‘to do’.

I have, however, been enjoying reading this blog by somebody who does have the time to make homemade cheese – and I’m extremely jealous.  I can also dream of the day when I might have the time…!

If, unlike me, you have plenty of time to spare, and cheesemaking takes your fancy, this blog is the place to start.  They’ve been making everything from blue cheese to ricotta, Cheddar to halloumi, and even Camembert style cheese!  Plus they give loads of details on how to do it yourself.

Sometimes, even on a weekend you can’t be bothered cooking or don’t have the energy.  Having things lying around in the fridge or cupboards that can make a tasty meal is essential and ensures you can eat well without trying too hard.

So here you have it:
